    Jacob Bronowski!  The Ascent of Man.  It’s truly a shame that he died at a rather young age (66).

    Oh and lovely cover!

    Little known fact: author Peter Laurie happens to have the same last name as actor Hugh Laurie.

    Pelican books were just wonderful.

    Golden age of publishing. Standing in front of a display of Pelican books was more exiting than the internet!

    Yeah, I have a good many of these. It starts with a couple of casual purchases, 20p here, 25p there. Then you notice the spines look good together on the shelf.  And then you’re lost.
